Pellet Fuels Institute Announces Qualification of Snow Timber Pellets into PFI Standards Program
Wisconsin Pellet Producer Becomes Program’s Sixteenth Member
Washington, DC – September 22, 2016 –The Pellet Fuels Institute today announced the qualification of pellet fuel manufacturer Snow Timber Pellets of Hurley, Wisconsin, into the Pellet Fuels Institute (PFI) Standards Program. The PFI Standards Program is a third-party accreditation program providing specifications for residential and commercial-grade pellet fuel, now representing fourteen pellet manufacturing companies, among them twenty-eight facilities.
“This winter, more customers than ever will be heating their homes with wood pellets from qualified manufacturers,” said Chris Amey, Chairman of the PFI Board of Directors. “All they have to do is look for the Quality Mark on the bag to know that they are purchasing fuel from an independently evaluated pellet producer. It’s easy to find these brands because more and more retailers look for the Quality Mark when making decisions on which pellet fuel brands to purchase. We welcome Snow Timber Pellets into the PFI Standards Program and look forward to many more PFI Standards Program members.”
PFI Standards Program participants can display the PFI Quality Mark on their pellet bags, signifying their qualification to the program requirements. This quality mark demonstrates to consumers that the product comes from a facility that submits its product to regular third party audits by an independent accredited auditing agency and testing laboratory. Random audits are regularly performed at production facilities to ensure qualified companies are following a quality control program. Wood pellets are tested according to the program specifications, also on a monthly basis. By taking these steps, participants ensure that their pellet quality remains consistent.
Snow Timber Pellets was qualified by accredited auditing agency Timber Products Inspection. For information on qualifying for the program, the first step is to contact an accredited auditing agency, a list of which can be find on PFI’s website.
